Does Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz Support Marijuana Reform?

The 2016 Presidential race went into full swing on Monday with the Iowa Caucuses taking place. On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton essentially tied, and O’Malley did so poorly that he dropped out of the race after the results were announced. On the GOP side, which has many more candidates, Ted Cruz came out on top, with Donald Trump taking second place in Iowa, and Marco Rubio rounding out the top three.

Ted Cruz pulled off somewhat of an upset by winning in Iowa, and has changed the conversation as far as who is considered to be the front-runner on the GOP side to get the party’s nomination. Of course, there has only been one state that has voted so far, and there’s still a lot of primaries to go, but Ted Cruz’s victory was impressive enough that I have heard a lot of political pundits point to him now as the front-runner, so take that for what you will.

From a purely marijuana reform perspective, Ted Cruz is not as bad as some of his challengers, but is far from being a marijuana reform supporter. With Ted Cruz, it has been a mixed bag when it comes to his position on marijuana policy. He has stated that he believes that marijuana reform should be left to the states to decide, but has also criticized the Obama Administration for not stepping in to stop the implementation of marijuana legalization in the states that have approved it. Per Mother Jones:

“When it comes to a question of legalizing marijuana, I don’t support legalizing marijuana,” he told Hugh Hewitt in April. “If it were on the ballot in the state of Texas, I would vote no.”

New York Will Consider Major Upgrades to Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, February, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

New York's medical marijuana program—AKA the Compassionate Care Act—which was feebly launched at the beginning of the year, not only comes with a chastity belt full of provisions that cater to only the half-dead, but the tight regulations wrapped up in this fiasco have put cannabis products mostly out of reach for the few patients who qualify for participation.

However, Manhattan Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, the lawmaker who was instrumental in the fight to bring medical marijuana to the state of New York, says he will introduce several pieces of legislation in the next coming weeks that he hopes will lead to a broad expansion to the program.

A recent article in the Village Voice indicates that Gottfried plans to submit a bill that will increase the number of cannabis producers permitted to operate across the state from five to somewhere in the vicinity of 10. The proposal would simplify the licensing process, evading a long drawn out approval period, by drawing the next selection of pot companies from the list of applicants that did not make the initial cut in 2015.

Detroit Puts 211 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries On Notice

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaAs early as this morning, medical marijuana dispensaries in Detroit will be opening envelopes containing letters from the City of Detroit regarding the city’s new registration process- and a reminder that most of them will not be in operation for very much longer.

The letter was referenced in a Powerpoint presentation created by three different divisions of government and delivered to City Council during a meeting Tuesday morning. The presentation, titled “Medical Marihuana Caregiver Center Application Process Status Report For Detroit City Council,” identifies 211 dispensary locations in the city and includes a map.

The status report also says, “Notice letters sent to all facilities on February 2, 2016, published in the Detroit Legal News and posted on the MMCC website.”

As of this writing, the letter is not easily located on any of the websites the city has created for medical marijuana caregiver centers. The Compassion Chronicles has not been able to obtain a copy.

The new medical marijuana rules will begin on March 1; any dispensary in the city has until March 31 to apply for a business license. Most of the applicants will have to apply for a zoning variance, as the city was extremely stingy on the number of locations properly zoned for the inappropriately-named caregiver centers.
